United States
Calendar year:  1996
It is possible that there will be discrepancies in the numbers of transferred arms as reported by exporting and importing states, due to differences in recorded dates of transfer and in what each country determines to constitute a reportable transfer. The U.S. considers that its transfers of military equipment occur at the time ownership title for the equipment is transferred between the U.S. and another country. The 1997 submission therefore includes equipment whose title was transferred during the 1996 calendar year. In addition, during the calendar year 1996 transfers to Taiwan took place as follows: I. Battle tanks 107, IV. Combat aircraft 9, V. Attack helicopters 8.
